Day 4 Summer CLH: Happy 4th Coffee Lovers!

okay - technically it's after midnight so not quite day 4 but I made the card on Day 4 and then had to wait for computer updates which took way too long so... I'm declaring it to still be Day 4. :) Now, on to the card...
Happy 4th! It's almost time to celebrate freedom and what's better than with a red, white and blue coffee card. Love the Verve 3 Cheers free digi for a coffee card with patriotic spirit. 3 cheers indeed!
Here's the inside featuring another one of those sweet little cups. 

Hopefully I'll be back a bit earlier in Day 5 but we will see. :) 

Have a wonderfully creative day!

Day 3 - SummerCLH: Distressed Gable Box

I'm now looking at every crafty thing as something that can be distressed. I found these kraft gable boxes so went to town with teal, green and purple inks. Stamped coffee beans on top of the box after distressing and then stenciled a flower on the front and the back. Isn't that fun! Added the super cute cups and sentiment from Lawn Fawn and finished it off with some ribbon.
Here's the back!
And, look - it's the perfect size to fit 2 k-cups. I'm going to make some Christmas-y one of these for the craft fairs this fall. I will add some bag filler to the box to make them extra special. :) What do you think? Wouldn't they make great teacher gifts or stocking stuffers for coffee loving friends?!

Day2 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - Like You a Latte

Sharing this sweet digi latte cup card on Day 2 of the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog hop. I used a card sketch to help me figure out the lay-out and colored up the digi with copics and a bit of clear wink of stella. The card sketch had a flower element but nothing that I had looked quite right so played around with different die cuts and  the winner was the scalloped circle with a bow on top. It finished off the card perfectly. Love when that happens!

Card sketches are awesome and are especially handy for when you're stuck in a style or stuck creatively. MFT has a bunch of card sketches that you can print. What a great resource!
